It is possible to pin a team down in a pretty small area and just murder them as they leave with their spawnpoint never moving. The only way it stops is if someone on the trapped team makes it out to another safe part of the map and people spawn on him or someone on the other team moves into the trapped spawn area, at which point killed members of the trapped team will spawn elsewhere.

Ah, and I'm pretty sure you're talking about Overgrown. I don't see how you lock down that map with 6 or 7 or even 8 people. Some of the spawn points are inside. I'm looking at an overhead 2d view of the map and the sight lines just aren't there to cover everything.

It would take a pretty rare set of coincidences to pull off the stuff you're talking about. There's more spawn points in most of the maps than there are total players. I don't doubt that it happens, I just doubt very much it can occur with any real regularity. And of course, situations somewhat like that are exactly what the Mercenary Team DM mode was created to avoid.

They are adding more spawn points in the patch in an effort to improve the spawn camping issue.

I'm going to be pretty much playing Hardcore Team Deathmatch from here on out.  Downside is my accuracy is really going down now.  I think it's because on normal mode when a burst of 3 comes out they all hit the target and kill it.  On hardcore when the burst of 3 comes out, the first round kills the target and the other two miss.  I'm playing the same, conservative bursts and no spraying and my accuracy % is dropping .01 per round in hardcore and gaining .01 every couple rounds in normal mode.

BTW regarding ATB's interesting math antics... the higher the numbers get the easier it seems to get a lower k/d.  If you have a round that you break even, it can actually lower your k/d % since the ratio has changed.

Well..yeah. Anytime you are over or under a 1.0 K/D ratio exactly, anytime you finish exactly 1:1 and break even your ratio will change...

Hark!  Question regarding Countdown and mounting the missle launcher.

I've managed to make the jump on to it, but I seem to land on the lip where I am unable manuever around to the back to actually get on the missiles.

Yeah, man today was nuts.

I had what's likely to be my best all around game ever. 67/6 in a round of Domination on Countdown. Nuts. I hit 25 for kill streak but died that 6th time right there making a stupid mistake. If I'd not made that one mistake I likely would have hit the 40's on my kill streak. I didn't die for the rest of the round after that :|

As far as K/D I only moved up to 1.90. I was at 1.91 and then had one particularly awful game where I went 25/21 and dropped back down a notch.

It's getting to a point where I doubt I'll be able to continue raising it. I had that game where I went 67/6 and it only went up .02 (from 1.88) and then one badly played game and I'm back down. I think I'm going to focus more on the Wins leaderboard from this point on. That seems the more important thing anyway really Tongue

I did some math to see what it will take for me to get to a 2.0 k/d and sadly I'd need to go 18-6 for 1000 straight matches to get that. ah well slywink My kills are high enough now that I need a change of hundreds of kills to make a visible difference.

I couldn't care less about the wins leaderboard because a full 50% or more of my losses and probably 10% of my wins are from games that ended early due to host quitting or losses from backing out to grab a friend who got dropped.

As I was driving hundreds of miles away from my 360 yesterday  icon_frown, I was again ruminating on starting a second live account.

This account would be used for playing MP games after I'm familiar with them to see what my K/D would be once I'm up to speed on the maps, techniques and weapons.

I bet my K/D would be around 4.0 or more in COD4 and probably 2.0 or more in Haloz.

I have a 3 day temp pass for Live at home. I may give it a go when I get home.

4.0 or more? Come on man, don't be absurd  slywink. ThinJ is the best COD4 player you will likely ever see and hes not even at 2.0.

I bet ATB could be 4.0 or higher, I know I could be if I hadn't started off playing so much domination and the like.  I often go with 11-1 odds or greater and sometimes 20-0.  My bad games are usually 2-1 any more with the occasional once a night 1-2.  I had 4 games in a row with over 30 kills and as many as 46 with between 1-5 deaths.  It's very doable but the learning curve ate up any chance I have at having a real k/d until I'm in the 100,000 kill area.

Are we talking about the real COD4 or the funky hardcore thing with your sniper rifle and assault rifle combo where you can find the correct corner of most maps and never be touched? I feel like its an important distinction.

Yeah I'd actually say it would be far from difficult to keep a k/d ratio up above 5 or 6ish if you could just suddenly reset your counts after you'd learned the game and earned all the perks and weapons.

Since flipping to the 3rd prestige, I've had my 2 best back to back matches ever. I set my new record for kills and then tied my old record. 39-16 in one and 32-4 in the next for a combined 71 and 16.

I'm now a huge believer in the M-16 as got the 150 kill challenge in a just a few matches. Zow!

I wanted to play a bunch tonight but Live is so goddamn broken right now I can't join any rooms from invites. I can hit "Find Game" all by myself but I can't join any rooms made by friends.

I got in one game of hardcore team DM, one game of regular team DM, and then just quit. It sucks seeing a big group from your friends list in one game and not being able to join it no matter how many invites they send you.

Did raise my K/D back up to 1.91 in those two games though.

The good 'ole M16 is my favorite weapon overall.  Not only does it constantly raise my K/D ratio, it increases my overall accuracy as well.

I want to preface this with the statement that I consider Kato a good friend and all ribbing is in good fun (because there are times when I don't know when to shut up):

Proner... you're dealing with Kato time here.  If he says 5 minutes, it could be 3 hours.  If he's going to eat dinner quick and be right back, add 45-120 minutes  ninja

God Damn, I did it again.  Told JarrodHK I would be getting a quick dinner, ended up being like 2 hours  tear  *sigh*

My wife is under the weather so I cater to her whims, (even driving an ungodly distance) to a restaurant she likes.


hahahaha good one...blame the only one here who cant defend themself.....a sick wife.......I guess it is a believable story....up to the point of you driving an ungodly distance to a restaurant she likes.....I mean any good husband would make her some chicken noodle soup and get right back to gaming....I mean....geeze get your priorities straight!

In all seriousness...I hope she is feeling better and will allow you to continue to get shot by us...ummm.....shoot us.....sometime soon....

I know I used to pull the "oh I will be right back" then have to deal with something that keeps me away longer than anticipated.  Just remember that a sick loved one comes first and we always understand....

Now back to your regularly scheduled gaming already in progress...... without you!
